  • Spooky Times at Newforge High

    We were away in South Korea over the Halloween period so I didn’t end up putting together the customary “making of” post. Halloween has been and gone, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy spooky things. If you haven’t already seen it, check out this year’s Newforge Studios horror flick, Desperation.

The capital is where everyone wants to be, evidenced by the absurdly high population density and endless rows of imposing apartment blocks. […]

I got back from Germany on Monday night, then was at Tennent’s Vital all day yesterday so this is the first time I’ve had to write. And I’m heading to Edinburgh tomorrow! Things really are […]

  • Gamescom…closed?

    Saturday was definitely an interesting day. Not much in the way of actual gaming went on, but the games I did get to play/see were big ones. It was also my first experience of being there at the very start for the insane opening rush. We arrived at Koelnmesse over an hour before opening and […]
